Chicken Enchiladas

27 Jul

I am currently expecting and cannot diet, but as soon as this sweet bean pops out, it’s back to diet and exercise for this family! So each week I will be calculating each meal for both calories and cost.  That way, when the time comes, calorie counting should be a cinch!

 

Ingredients:

  • 2 lbs cooked shredded chicken
  • Tortilla shells
  • 1/4 c butter or margarine
  • 1 tbsp minced garlic
  • 2 cups shredded cheddar

Directions:

 

In a skillet, melt butter and saute garlic.  Add shredded chicken.  Simmer for 5-10 minutes.  Add 1 spoonful of chicken to tortilla.  Sprinkle with cheese.  Roll up and place in a casserole dish.  Repeat.  Sprinkle with cheese. Bake at 350 for about 15 minutes.
